The East Bend Library opened its doors in 2011 and is the newest addition to the Deschutes Public Library System. This library is located across from The Forum shopping center right off of Highway 20. The East Bend Library is a rented 8,000 square foot storefront designed by Jim Landin and BRLB/GGL Architects of Bend.

This small and mighty library offers full services such as books, music, and movies; public computers; a community meeting room and hosts library-sponsored lectures and presentations as well as story times; and an interactive Early Learning space for children. Several of the library’s programs for adults and children are offered in English and Spanish. Free WiFi is available throughout the building.

    What happens when Shakespeare's words meets piano rock?

    "Play: Songs from Shakespeare" is a release that combines words from Shakespeare from Hamlet, Midsummer Night’s Dream, and Romeo & Juliet put to sophisticated songwriting of piano rock that only Here Comes Everybody can deliver. CDs will be available as well as 180 gram green vinyl of “Play” as well as the entire catalogue of their historic 15+ releases. www.herecomeseverybody.com for more info.

    Here Comes Everybody was conceived by founding members Michael Jarmer and René Ormae-Jarmer in 1986 and has been rocking the greater Portland and NW ever since. From its new wave progressive rock beginnings, HCE has evolved over the years, moving freely in and out of various configurations and genres, but sticking to the entire time to its greatest passion and strength: the memorable and delicious modern pop song. The 21st century finds Michael and René performing as a duo or trio and a whole lot of singing. Performing live at festivals, clubs, events, TV, and radio you cannot help but be entertained by these veteran musicians.

    Enjoy a puppet show about how Anansi the Spider tricks his friends with a special rock, learn about different rocks in our area and make your own “special Anansi rock” to take home. Age 6-11.

    Hey Anansi, what’s up with that strange, moss covered rock? In this puppet show based on an African folktale, Anansi, the master trickster, uses a magical rock to deceive his friends. But will Anansi’s trickiness catch up to him? We probably won’t find a magical rock like Anansi’s, but we’ll also explore some different rocks found in our area and take a look at the hobby of rock hounding. Before you leave, “rock out” by making your own “strange, moss covered rock” to take home with you.

    Get to know Billy the Kid.

    Billy the Kid (1859-1881) is likely the most-written-about character of the Old West. Part warm friend, part desperado, he roamed the Southwest in the late 1870s and early 1880s. His supporters, particularly Hispanics and women, celebrated his bravery and courage; opponents called him a gunman and murder. Which was he? Why are so many unsolved mysteries still surrounding him? What should we think about him? This slide-illustrated presentation will deal with both the life and legends of Billy the Kid.

    Richard W. Etulain, a specialist in the history and literature of the American West, is professor emeritus of history at the University of New Mexico. The son of a Basque sheepman and frontier mother, he was raised on a sheep ranch in eastern Washington and took his doctorate at the University of Oregon. He is the author or editor of more than 50 books, including "Beyond the Missouri: The Story of the American West (1996)," "The Life and Legends of Calamity Jane (2014)," "Ernest Haycox and
    the Western (2014)," and most recently "Presidents Who Shaped the American West (2018)." He is presently completing a two-volume study of Billy the Kid, scheduled for publication in 2019.
